The second in the series will further illuminate Bruce and Derek’s session with some top ‘takeaway tips’ – of benefit to HTs, DHTs and PTs alike.  An opportunity to share in the practice of three outstanding practitioners on their lockdown journeys.  Sarah Clark (2020 Digital Innovator of the Year Nominee, (Queen Anne HS, Dunfermline)) will focus on what she’s been up to in order to sustain the creative approaches she’s become renowned for.  Derek Paterson (DHT at Larbert HS in Falkirk, who leads on ‘Connected Falkirk’ (1:1 device strategy)) will show how his teachers have been harnessing technology to ease the marking load whilst increasing the quality of feedback and, finally, Katrina Price (PT Modern Languages at Linwood HS, Renfrewshire) will demonstrate how the tools she’s using to redefine her teaching approaches, can be used across the curriculum in any context. There’s a lot to learn from lockdown – but that’s for the next one…
